Today at Flavorpill, this supercut of 40 TV Christmas moments reminded us that Saved by the Bell once did its very own rendition of A Christmas Carol — and Slater was Tiny Tim. We found McSweeney’s “Jingle Bells FAQ” illuminating. We thought it was very sweet that Jonathan Ames bought Bored to Death fans $1600 worth of drinks at a memorial for the show Wednesday night. We enjoyed an NSFW animated holiday card from Dan Meth, featuring appearances by both James Brown and Mike Tyson. We explored the Matt Damon Hairodox: “The more awful the hair, the better the performance.” We overanalyzed Carrie Brownstein’s candid photos from the set of Portlandia. We gawked at Hilary Duff’s festively painted baby bump. We got hungry thinking about the ten most mouth-watering moments from the Bible. We reminded you that this is your last chance to demonstrate your generosity and Flavorpill love by donating to Food Bank for New York City. (We’re competing with other NYC media companies to see who can raise the most money for this great cause, and the contest ends tomorrow.) And finally, we wished our readers a very happy holiday, whether you’re observing the birth of Christ, celebrating the Festival of Lights, or airing your Festivus grievances. We’ll be counting down the first half of our top 20 posts of the year over this weekend and will be back with new stuff on Monday.
